Bouncing Baby Boy

An ex-colleague's wife gave birth to a baby boy this morning. So I decided to make a card and some matching paper. I bought some brown paper and stamped some cute messages and images. I made a card which kind of matches although I used a bear on the card instead of the snail I used on the paper.

PTI Blog Hop

This is my first ever PTI Blog hop so please be gentle.

I made this a homage to Dawn McVey. I loved her idea for storing the fab PTI dies. I was getting annoyed that they were just shoved into a box with nothing to show which was which. So when I saw Dawn's blog I decided I would use her idea. Thanks Dawn.

So I rushed out and bought a very cheap and small sewing machine and got stuck in. I am not proud of my sewing attempts but they do the job. I am totally blaming the machine lol.

I decided to use my PTI egg box. I ordered 2 by accident over the summer and I am now glad I did. They fit my dies perfectly. I have all my dies in their own little pocket and still have lots and lots of room left for my die stash to grow he he

Hope you like

My girls

Here is a recent photo of two of my cats. The one at the front is Molly and the one behind is Lily. Chico was obviously having a bad fur day that day as he didn't want his picture taken lol.

Christmas Card Design

This is the design I think I am going to use for my dads christmas cards this year. I tried to experiment with using punched circles instead of buttons but it just did not look right. So I am just going to have to use my precious PTI buttons (sigh). I have kept it relatively simple because I want to make them very quickly. Especially since I will be making all those calendars lol.

Where will I find the time? Hmm now that is a tough one!

First ever Scrapbook pages

I was encouraged (ahem) by my friend Fee to try Scrap booking. So while in America I picked up some albums. So on Saturday last week I tried my hand at making my own pages.

I kept them simple because I am just a beginner. I am happy with my pages. They are not perfect but they are a good start.
